this new design has yet to receive a proper name yet but i needed a new project and decided that a new modular design that might also interest the guys i fly with.. she uses a lockup plate to control the arm layout ( SX TX hybrid and squish
) and keep it a true one bolt arm system. so far this setup seems to work really well with the initial issues been my roll cage, which should be sorted in the second version. testing and tuning has produced a solid tune and as expected a nice clean airframe with a low noise floor.. the sandwich plate thicknesses and cut direction helping keep the airframe on target noise and performance wise. with a few things to tidy up moving to the next version so far this project is showing loads of potential, can't wait to put it round a track
